DIY Outdoor Garden Chandelier Round-up

I am eager to get home (on a red-eye flight tonight) and back to some projects and normal life. I have a patio project going on that should be nearing completion this week.  Once finished, I am excited to start adding features — like a beautiful garden chandelier. I have lots of great, inexpensive, DIY options that I have rounded up for your inspiration and my own.  My personal favorite for my particular project is the beaded dollar store option, what is yours?
